Can You Even Remember Me?

it is since forever I last time have written anything. It feels awful, like writing and publishing the first posts for the first time, and kind of I am. If you are on this will be the last post you will ever read here. I have finally moved to my own domain so click here to switch to the new blog. This is not a fresh start really, I don't want it to be.  Moving to the WordPress have been on my mind few years now and finally, I made it. I am working with something I started years ago so all the old post will be available and I actually have revealed even more of the old posts for you to read.  I believe starting things again and again will just lead to nothing. We need to make things already existing work like Tim Gun would say -to reach what we want and already have started. There is no reason to hide the past. So if you still are on, click the link, NOW!

You are on, right? Good. Wasn’t that quick? The transforming tough was nor fast or easy at all. Even tough I have installed the WordPress and it works pretty well now on, there is awful lot to do with the layout, categories and archives to start with -the website is not ready yet. I’m sure it never will be. I think blogging is work-in-progress and when the blog reaches the point of the ultimate perfection it is time to stop blogging and start doing something else. I believe that the layout tough can be perfect and mine is not there yet, but I just couldn’t wait it anymore. And why would I?

I’ve been full of inspiration since the December but I haven’t written or published even pictures I have shoot with my friends. I wanted to manage the move first and then start posting when the website would be perfect. Nothing is ready yet but I just can’t wait anymore. I’m still creating the layout and sites but I want to post and write. And end this break I was not supposed to have. I have been edited this post already few days now. Like I wrote before: it feels like writing the first post. I know this feeling will pass in soon when I get back to the ”normal” posting. Normal in dittos because I don’t have any certain schedule, never have had and probably never will have.

My original plan was to launch the at the beginning of 2017, but I messed it up with the domain registration to WordPress: I created not blog and account (for the ones who doesn’t know, there is a major distance between those two platforms). With hours of sweat and days of fight, I managed to transform everything, including the original blog from blogger to the I know it wouldn’t be that hard if I would have read more or have asked help from someone to do these easy things and I saved a lot of time and nerves, but I wanted to do everything by myself. I tried even to code the theme few weeks but with my skills, wich are terrible, it was a bad idea so I ended up buying very customizable theme I have worked with. There is a terrible lot to do, but for now I am happy with the chaos I have. Later when I have time I maybe will learn to code the website or hire someone to do it, so it could be 100% my own.

Christmas 2016

Christmass has been over for a while even though I won't admit that. Maybe, because I usually have continued the Christmas till the New Years Eve spending the days doing nothing in my pyjamas, reeding books with chocolate and of course seeing my friends. Past years I've went to Helsinki for the Christmas sales and the city has been crazy. There has been more people than the days before Christmas which I found quite funny. Unfortunately I'm back in the barrack and had to open my computer and get back to work. Not that I don't want to write, vice versa, but I would rather live in the illusion of Christmas with dozens of blankets and mulled wine.

I had great Christmas with my family and friends. My Christmas was very traditional mainly because I wanted it to be. Even though the traditions will change and new come, I want to treasure the old ones as much as I can, so I spend the Christmas Eve first at my moms and then in my grandmas just like the past years. Unfortunately I didn't see my grandpapa and papa because they wren't in the city.  Even tough I want to see everyone,  obviously, I won't judge if someone doesn't want to have traditional Christmas. , everyone can spend their Christmas whee they what and how they want. I'm not ready to leave my hometown to spend the christmas somewhere else, yet.

In Christmas night I went to the church with my sister and our friends and stayed up till the morning in one of our friends kitchen just talking and catching up. The Christmas Day party at Seurahuone, hotel in my city with legendary parties in Christmas and the graduation day in summer, was amazing. I was there last year too so I suppose we can keep it as a tradition, right? Everyone was there and I had so much fun. Definitely the party of the year, again.

So this was my Christmas 2016. I took pictures only the Christmas Eve with the magical feeling Christmas come in with. This year was also the first one I was more excited about giving than getting presents. I feel the ones I gave was quite personal and some of them very sentimental as well. I my self got lots of chocolates and books, the ones I wanted, so I couldn't be happier.

What to Wear During the Holidays?

Don't know what to wear on Christmas? Don't worry, I do either. On Christmas I have always chosen my outfit by the feeling I have at the moment. The key to best Christmas outfit is to feel good. If you feel good, you look good. Choose your outfit that make you feel cozy or million dollar depending your plans. What you wear has a great impact on how you feel. 

This is the outfit I will probably wear on Christmas day, when I go to the club with my friends. Going out on Christmas day might seem weird but in Finland the Christmas Eve is the day we really celebrate the Christmas with our families and the Christmas Day is the time to stay home, see relatives and yes, go out. I want to look great but also feel comfortable so I will wear white shirt with black jeans, classic combo the can't ever go wrong and look festive and the most important feels good, if the jeans fit well and shirt is tailored like those should be. Wear the classic items you already have and style it with red, green and gold details and accessories, if you want. You really don't need to buy the new velvet suit or Christmas jumper.  Forget the too tight cloths you have, Christmas is all about feeling good.
